Consecration of Canada to the Blessed Virgin Mary

CONSECRATION OF CANADA TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY – Along with the US bishops and in solidarity with the Canadian Conference of Bishops, and together with Archbishop Michael Miller, CSB, all pastors were invited to consecrate their parish to Mary, Mother of the Church on Friday, May 1st, 2020, seeking her maternal protection during the Coronavirus pandemic. The title “Mary, Mother of the Church” was given to the Blessed Mother by Pope St. Paul VI at the Second Vatican Council, and a memorial under the title was added to the Church’s liturgical calendar in 2018.
